Sony NW-ZX300 Walkman Digital Music player with High-Resolution Audio
Enjoy truly authentic Hi-Res Audio in a high-performing Walkman with a compact body. The NW-ZX300 has been engineered for master quality sound, exactly as the artist intended, in a palm-sized design with a sleek, matte glass touch screen for fewer fingerprints. With Bluetooth connectivity, you’ll be carrying studio-quality sound in your pocket wherever you go.
Hi-Res Audio for uncompromising sound
Experience digital music to the fullest with Hi-Res Audio. By capturing music at a higher rate than CD and increasing both audio samples per second and the bitrate accuracy of each sample, Hi-Res Audio offers an uncompromised rendition of an artist's music. Savor every breath and subtle movement for a truly emotional experience.
11.2 MHz Direct Stream Digital (DSD) playback for Hi-Res Audio
Enjoy studio-quality sound thanks to the Direct Stream Digital (DSD) audio codec—designed specifically for Hi-Res Audio. This 1-bit format operates at a far higher frequency than conventional PCM digital audio, resulting in a more natural, and intensely detailed sound. The result is clearer, crisper, Hi-Res Audio quality.1
S-Master HX™ digital amplifier: utmost sonic purity
Using a simplified and fully digital signal path, S-Master HX™ reproduces the subtleties and wide frequency range of high resolution formats. Unlike conventional amplifiers, it maintains the digital signal until right before the speaker output, eliminating distortion.
DSEE HX™ restores all your compressed music files
Go beyond CD quality. DSEE HX™ builds on our proprietary DSEE™ technology, upscaling compressed audio files to a level that's closer to Hi-Res Audio. By restoring the subtleties of the original recording that are lost during the compression process, DSEE HX™ delivers a rich, studio-quality audio experience for all your music.
The NW-ZX300 Walkman® features a balanced standard plug, designed for the new Φ0.17" balanced connection cable. This supplies compatible headphones with fully discrete left and right channels, unlike conventional headphones that share a ground wire. The result is far better external noise suppression and improved stereo imaging, as well as more headroom for powerful sound delivery.
USB DAC Function for higher-quality music
Experience the great sound quality of the NW-ZX300 as a USB Digital–Analog Converter (DAC) for your PC or Mac computer. When connected, activated, and using the supplied USB cable, the NW-ZX300 replaces your computer's regular sound processing with its own highly tuned processing hardware. Enjoy premium sound quality, whether you're at home or in the office, commuting, or in a coffee shop.
Matte glass screen
A touch-sensitive matte glass screen allows smooth fingertip control with less fingerprints.
Intuitive side key
The simple, near instinctive side-key control enables you to control your music with ease.
Listen longer with improved battery life. 2
Never run out of power when you're on the move. The NW-ZX300 holds enough charge for up to 30 hours of 128 kbps MP3 playback, or up to 26 hours of 96 kHz/32 bit FLAC Hi-Res Audio playback, so you don't have to worry about finding a charger when you're out and about.
Expandable storage for endless playlists
In addition to the integrated 64 GB memory, there's also room for a microSD card, so you can take even the biggest music collections on the go.
